SOUTHWEST - AT A GLANCE
Southwest England is home to some of England’s most enchanting spots.
Counties such as Dorset, Devon and Cornwall maintain a feeling of remoteness and tranquility that make them popular holiday destinations.
The region’s major cities include Bristol and Bath, which are just a 12 minute train journey from each other.
In this part of the country you can see how the Romans bathed in Bath, discover the delights of a ‘Devon Cream Tea’ and venture to the wild western reaches of Cornwall to seek out subtropical gardens and seafood.
Bristol is only 1 hour 40 minutes from London by train.
